- Why a Premium Grade Sword? This sword suprasses the design specifications of the issue-style swords. WKC uses a certified gold plating finish on the guard and scabbard fittings instead of the issue sword's lacquer finish. The blade etch has superb detail and also provides a space for a personalized etch. These features along with WKC's excellent craftsmanship make this sword worthy of the Premium title.

Product QuestionsWhat type/grade stainless steel is used for the blade of the Marine Officer Sword?
Does the Marine Officer Sword have a full or partial tang?Question by: Brad Straus on Apr 25, 2017 11:26:00 AMWhy are there different lengths of NCO sabers? I am ordering one for a retiring NCO, how do I know the length to purchase?Question by: Stan Warrick on Mar 17, 2017 6:18:00 PMThe sizes are based off arm length. If you order too short, on a tall person the blade looks like a butter knife. If you order too long, the blade is likely to pop your cap off. It is ideal to be measured in person, as the blade lengths can vary due to the arm length of the individual. However, if you are unable to make it into the shop to be sized for a sword, then it is best to size based off height. Below is a list we use for "general sizing".
5'6"-5'7"= 28", 5'8"-5'9"= 29", 5'10"-5'11" = 30", 6'-6'1"= 31", 6'2"-6'3"=32", 6'4"-6'5"= 33", 6'6" & over= 34"Answer by: Hannah Aaron (Admin) on Mar 21, 2017 6:37:00 PMQuestion by: Mark Lobley on Nov 8, 2018 7:00:00 PMOur swords are made by a company called WKC, located in Solingen, Germany.
